I think it can be highly effective. My dd had dyslexia and dysgraphia, which have been greatly helped by her use of a laptop. I have a nephew with dysgraphia who wouldn't have graduated on time without his computer skills to aid his writing. I have seen technology help many, many other kids with LDs as I work in schools.
